New Micro Machines World Series gameplay trailer shows explosive racing in action

From Press Release Email:

Codemasters & Deep Silver today released the second gameplay trailer for the eagerly anticipated Micro Machines World Series ahead of its release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC via Steam on June 23rd.

Racing has always been at the heart of Micro Machines, and Micro Machines World Series jolts that heartbeat back into action. With hundreds of customizations available, you can race in style and make sure you stand out on every race’s starting line. Chief Game Designer Gavin Cooper said, “For the first time in a Micro Machines game, every car has its own entirely distinct personality … and arsenal. Each gives players a different way to play and enjoy the game, meaning fans of the series will have plenty to sink their teeth into.”

“Players will quickly gain an affinity with a particular vehicle and find it suits their style of play,” he continued. “You can master one vehicle collecting all the 25+ customizations, but then have a whole host of variety choosing and mastering all the other vehicles in the game.”

Each ride has a slightly different feel, and even sound, in Micro Machines World Series. Choose from 12 distinctly individual vehicles, from the twitchy-but-agile rear wheel drive hot rod of El Incendio to the scarily-good all-rounder monster truck of Hank N. Stein.

Micro Machines World Series also boasts a great mix of classic and new tracks and arenas. Art Director Stuart Campbell says: “New locations like the workshop complement Micro Machines classics like the games room and classroom. Dodging pool balls while trying to shoot a G.I. JOE MOBAT has never looked so good or felt so fun.” 

Players will also pick up items on the track in the form of Hasbro-branded NERF blasters and NERF power-ups. All these can be deployed in Hasbro-branded locations including an Ouija board or in the middle of a Hungry Hungry Hippos battle.

The huge and unmistakable voice talent of Brian Blessed OBE is once again excitedly alerting you to all the madness and chaotic fun, commentating on the action as players race and battle for the gold.
